Flourish Champions of the Summer Term 2024

Wednesday, June 19, 2024

Every term, we ask the schools and academies that we work with, to nominate a member of our team that has worked in their schools to be Flourish Champion of the Term. We ask them to nominate someone who has gone above and beyond for their school or their pupils.

Over the last 2 weeks, our Flourish team have been visiting some of the schools that we work with, to present a gift voucher and flowers to our Flourish Champions of the term. We wanted to thank them for their flexibility and dedication, and for being incredible to us, the pupils they support and the schools they work with.

We have received a tremendous number of nominations this term, so many that it was impossible to pick just three. This term we are excited to announce there are five Flourish Champions of the term! Without further ado, our winners are:

Saiema, Victoria, Adele, Julie and Cheenen!

She is an asset to the Flourish Team!” – Lizzy Francis Drummond, Birmingham Branch Manager


Congratulations Saiema, Victoria, Adele, Julie and Cheenen; thank you for everything you do!

It was incredibly difficult to narrow down the nominations to just five, as all the ones we received were fantastic and it’s lovely to hear how well-thought-of our Flourish Champions are within the schools that we work with. We are extremely proud of all our Flourish Champions and are thankful for their continued commitment, enthusiasm and professionalism.


*Unfortunately, Cheenen was in class when we surprised her, so we were unable to get a photo of her receiving her gifts as there were children all around her.
